Local student shows off her wares Image

By Jack Hayes

Holmesglen’s Southbank campus fashion student Yan Ho was recently selected to showcase her collection as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF).

The event, spearheaded by Study Melbourne, as part of VAMFF’s Cultural Program Project Series, celebrates the next generation of Victorian designers.

Yan, who hails from Malaysia, had her collection, 5 Elements, chosen to represent the season of summer as part of VAMFF’s Four Seasons in One Night event.

The inspiration for Yan’s collection came from the five Japanese elements of fire, water, earth, wood and metal.

“The quilting pattern on each piece captures my mood and feelings. It’s how I show my emotional connection to the garment,” Yan said.

For Yan, fashion has always been her been her life so choosing Melbourne as her place of study was a simple decision.

“I love it here. It is such an innovative, exciting, adventurous and modern city. It has really helped inspire my designs,” she said.

Yan’s teachers at Holmesglen are immensely proud of her being able to represent the institute.

“Yan’s collection was fresh, innovative and is representative of the versatility of Holmesglen graduates,” head of fashion Julie Wright said.

“Yan is a dedicated student with a strong future in fashion.”

Holmesglen’s city campus is located on St Kilda Rd, and is home to an amazing fashion program, with access to industry standard facilities.
